Dear Mammy,

I am sorry I had to pass
out of the picture in such a way.
I [illegible] considerable and dislike leaving
you with a burden, or rather without
an income.
I have put-down carefully
all my affairs. Please destroy all
my writing, without examination, and
do what you will with personal
affects.
Even tho I have lost the
adventure was worthwhile. Our
family tends to be too secure. My
life has really been very happy
and I didn’t mind contemplating its end
in the midst of that.
Mildred [Tawle] can perhaps tell
you the circumstances surrounding my
departure, etc. if you wish them.
Affectionately, your doter
